FERO Thermal Tie™ – Heavy-Duty Holed Rap-Tie® Masonry Connector

FERO Thermal Tie™ – Heavy-Duty Holed Rap-Tie® Masonry Connectors are designed to transfer lateral loads from the exterior masonry veneer to the structural backing with one fastener. The L-shaped, 16-gauge steel plate of the tie is fastened to the surface of the structural backing. Holes sit along the far end of the plate, and the V-Tie™ is inserted into the corresponding hole, providing a constant connection of the veneer wall to the structural backing without any risk of veneer disengagement. By using multiple fasteners, both shear and axial forces can be resisted and the entire wall assembly functions as a whole. The wall thickness (including the veneer and structural backing) work to limit lateral load, offering reduced lateral deflections and increased resistance.
